Whoever said you can’t guarantee happiness clearly has never tried this recipe.
Glazed Cinnamon Pecans taste just like gourmet candied nuts. They are gently tossed in a lightly salted sweet glaze that is crunchy and addicting!
Whenever we have a salad in a restaurant Bob always enjoys having glazed pecans tossed in. Nothing can take a salad to the next level like perfectly glazed nuts. Their contrasted between sweetness, saltiness, and crunch is heavenly.
It never dawned on me that they were glazed and that is why he liked them so much. Well, shoot, I can glaze them too! Not to mention keeping them raw and healthier. Move over “restaurant glazed nuts”…there is a new nut in town and his name is Bob. hehe
When pecans are fresh, they have a crisp, buttery texture and a mildly sweet and nutty taste. So be sure to taste test the pecans that you use for this recipe.
When you find a good source of pecans, stock up. They will need to be stored in a cool, dry place completely void of moisture. If you want to prolong the life of the pecans, placing them in the freezer will suffice. The quality of the pecans will not be affected even if you thaw and refreeze them several times.
If you store the pecans outside the refrigerator or freezer, keep them in a cool, dark place such as the pantry. Sealed bags can be used, but this kind of storing is not recommended for long term storage.
